THE ITINERARY

Day 1:
On arrival at Fancourt check into your luxury room and enjoy the relaxing country feeling of this magnificent estate.  Kick your shoes off and enjoy a refreshing drink around the pool or head over to the Club Lounge & Bar to watch the players coming in on the 18th green of the Montague Golf Course, before dinner at Monet.
Day 2:
Enjoy breakfast, then head over to the Montagu Golf Course for an unforgettable 18 holes on one of the top golf courses in South Africa.  The stunning landscape, water hazards and colourful scrubs will leave many a memory for years to come.  Enjoy a relaxing afternoon around the pool before dinner.
Day 3: 
After enjoying an early Garden Route breakfast, make your way to the Outeniqua Golf Course for another round of great golf on the wide open, but still challenging, golf course with plenty of fairways to work with but just enough water to keep you on your toes.  Afternoon at leisure before trying something different from the menu at Money.
Day 4: 
After breakfast, head over to the clubhouse for a round on the #1 golf course in South Africa, The Links at Fancourt.  It is another masterpiece by the legendary Gary Player and a course for true champions.   After your round, load up your gear and take the short drive to Knysna and check in to you Suite at Simola Golf & Country Estate.  Try your hand at saltwater fly-fishing or hop onto a bicycle and ride a trail through some of the most beautiful forest scenery in South Africa.  Dinner at The Orchid Room is always something special.
Day 5: 
After breakfast, make your way to Pezula Golf Club for 18 exhilarating holes of gold on this prestigious golf course overlooking the Indian Ocean and Knysna cliffs.  This is a risk-for-reward course with rolling hills and an array of shots will see you through this challenging yet exciting golf course.  Spend some time after the round in the Knysna Woods and be astonished at the size of the trees still standing in this protected area.  Spoil your taste buds at The Firefly Restaurant for dinner.
Day 6: 
With breakfast behind you, load up your clubs for Simola Golf Course.  Hills, trees and a beautiful view of the lagoon will make for an exceptional day of golf.  With little or no wind, you can hit your best shots on this excellent Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.  Enjoy an afternoon at leisure and a fantastic dinner at The Orchid Room restaurant.
Day 7: 
Enjoy breakfast and make your way to the amazing Botlierskop Private Game Reserve, a scenic 1h30 drive from Knysna.  You should arrive shortly after lunch which gives you time to settle in before your evening game drive and a chance to spot the famous Big 5 of South Africa.  Dinner will be served back at the lodge.
Day 8: 
An early wake-up call and coffee will get you ready for your morning game drive.  Sunrise in this part of the country is unbelievable, and the fresh, crisp air will definitely make you relax and marvel at nature.  When you return to the lodge breakfast will be served and you will have time to enjoy the scenery.  After lunch, enjoy a guided walk to see the smaller miracles around you.  The day will finish off with another game drive and dinner around the fire with friends.
Day 9: 
Today will be about the same as yesterday, but completely different.  You will see more wildlife and birds, have another chance to spot the Big 5 if you haven’t seen them all already and a new adventure awaits on your guided walk.  Dinner with your new friends where you swop stories about this beautiful country and its amazing people.
Day 10: 
After breakfast, depart from the lodge for your onward journey.
